Dementia presents immense challenges – both for individuals as well as for society as a whole. More than 35 million people all over the world currently live with dementia, a number that is expected to double by 2050. This also has implications for architecture and urban planning because dementia often affects people’s sense of orientation and their ability to perceive space. How can we provide good spatial orientation for people with dementia? This question is addressed extensively in a selection of professional essays and projects that also carve out specific requirements for various disciplines.
